Falling asleep on time

Office Hours (Wednesday, November 16th, 2022) about light, food, and sleep.

Today’s discussion is going to give you a preview of a sleep workshop I am creating for parents. The topic is sleep, food, and light! And breaking down the false idea we can set our circadian rhythms simply by going to bed and waking up at the same times every day.

Brighter Days, Darker Nights is a reader-supported publication. To receive new posts and support my work, consider becoming a free or paid subscriber.

Welcome to today’s Office Hours for Brighter Days, Darker Nights

I’ve invited you and all subscribers to talk here about your sleep routines, and what effects (if any) you have noticed from light and food. If you would like to take part, add your question or comment about sleep here:

Once you post your comment, your fellow readers and I will do our best to share our knowledge and tips. If you see a question and have something to say, hit the reply button on that comment to share your thoughts.

New format!

Instead of making this a time-sensitive thing, I’ve decided to leave these office hours posts open for the duration between sessions. So, don’t worry about what time it is! We’ll still see your comments and I won’t close this discussion until the next session starts in two weeks.

Updates and reminders:

If you have general questions or feedback about this publication, you’re still in the right place. Leave a comment in this thread to get your question answered.
